2016 Summer Olympic Games Pick ‘Em Contest, Presented by TYR

2016 Summer Olympic Games

  • (Swimming) Saturday, August 6th – Saturday, August 13th
  • Olympic Aquatics Center – Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The 2016 Summer Olympic Games are on their final approach, and it’s time to make your picks for the 2016 Summer Olympic Games. The winner of our Olympic Trials contest was ‘dan,’ so he’ll be the one to beat in Rio.



We’re focusing on medals this time, and correctly picking the following places will get you points:

  • gold – 7 points
  • silver– 5 points
  • bronze – 4 points

By using the new Google Forms format, you CAN go in and edit your responses up until 8AM on Saturday, August 6th. You can also use this “edit responses” ability to go in and print or save your answers.

The tie-breaker for prizes, if necessary, will be the most correctly-picked winners, then 2nd-place finishers, then 3rd-place finishers, etc. in the relevant time period.

The top 3 scorers for each day of the competition will receive:

  • USA-themed TYR goggles
  • USA-themed TYR cap

  • A year subscription to SwimSwam Magazine
